We had lunch in this interesting setting on a week day and the place was not that busy. The decor is well worth it, the restaurant seems to have been built by knocking down walls from several adjoining tall houses, now all done up and spacious looking. Looks like Flemish style but I am not an expert! We were made... More

We had a short break in Lille and liked this restaurant so much we went twice. The food is excellent, the restaurant is really charming - lots of bare brick, and nice ambience, Would recommend it.

I highly recommend this place to those visiting Lille. It is a good match of cosy atmosphere, competent and friendly service and tasty food. Here you can try typical dishes from the North of France or just order a plate of pasta. Both will be delicious!

Wanted a nice traditional french restaurant for my husbands birthday. Booked this online and we were not disappointed. A couple of minutes walk from the centre this restaurant was welcoming. Started with cocktails then delicious starters and mains a good bottle of chardonnay and brandies to follow all for €115. Stunning food mainly locals eating but they must know it's... More

The receptionist was the best bit about the place, helpful, kind and thoughtful, stunning building too. It was NYE and we were booked in for 10pm. We managed to sit a bit earlier. The food was average, the service terrible. They appeared short staffed, yet complacent. We had to ask for more wine, they delivered the wrong main for my... More

The restaurant was full (best make a reservation) yet the service was top - complements to the very kind and hard working waiter. Food was very tasteful too. We did not go for the dessert but they all really looked awesome.

Very nice "Estaminet" in Lille, location in Lille Center, food is excellent : just try the Rabbit leg with Maroilles cheese and the Tartelette aux Maroilles. But better to make a reservation.
